What people are saying about Central Market, Valencia

This experience was an exceptional introduction Valencia on our first night. The tour of the Old Town was well-paced, fascinating and informative, adding considerable insight that you'd completely miss otherwise. The tapas and wine was equally good with an excellent quality and quantity of food and drink accompanied by detailed and interesting explanations of each course, all in a superb private setting. Our guide, Emma, very much made the whole experience with her brilliant knowledge and humour throughout!

This was a highlight in our trip to Spain. We were lucky enough to have a wonderful guide named Dani who made every moment of the tour a delight. He managed to mix history and storytelling in a most entertaining way. The tapas and wine portion was outstanding. Each tapas was hand prepared and delicious. The wine choices were perfect well. We highly recommend this experience.

Olivia was our guide, she was great throughout touring the city, telling us all kinds of interesting bits about Valencia, its buildings, streets, cathedrals... Also described each of the courses after walking through the city, talked about the wines that were served, their histories and origins... A very nice tour altogether.

This is a great tour. I enjoyed seeing all the 11th century walls and also enjoyed wine and tapas tasting. They gave you a lot of food! It was a great experience!

Excellent guide who led us on a very informative tour through some of the most beautiful areas of Valencia and topped it off with some excellent tapas and wine.
